In 2015, Cord Garcia made history when he won the first ever COLOSSUS Event: a small buy-in, multiple flight event that saw Garcia turn $565 into $638,880. Today, the COLOSSUS has moved online in the 2021 GGPoker WSOP Online Festival. The buy-in is down to $400 for this event, and the prizepool has a guarantee of $3 million.
However, that guarantee has already been passed, currently sitting at over $3,700,000, and it’s still growing! Over 1,800 players have already qualified for today’s Day 2 finals, which are set to kick off at 8:05 PM GMT.
The blinds coming back today will be 5,000/10,000, and all levels will be 12 minutes long. The current average stack is 314,385, or 31 big blinds, and the biggest stack in the virtual room belongs to “Iscanque” with 1,281,211. Nick Maimone (894,720), Gleb Trezmin (882,405), Alex Greenblatt (839,623), and Daniel Dvoress (835,354), are currently in the top 20.
The cards will be back in the air in an hour. We will post a list of the top 10 chip counts once the final Day 2 return list has been decided shortly. Stay tuned to Pokernews for all of your GGpoker WSOP bracelet action!
